About Jumuisha Initiative
Why Our Work
The core reason we started the organization was to provide support to youth and students in academic and social change. Each of us had people we looked up to while growing up. We believe that, no matter the dimension of growth, everyone needs a mentor.
Over time, there was need to extend help in more thematic areas around education, decent livelihood and climate action and we stepped up to provide support to the communities. As we count our blessings, we count the 21,000 beneficiaries of our programs and initiatives.
This unit is our knowledge hub. It houses learning and life skills for a better future for youth and women. Our courses are tailored to benefit local and informal entities, school going youth, and children;
- Leadership skills – Student leaders in high schools
- Financial literacy and management – Informal and local entities
- Digital learning – All interested
Working in the grassroots, Jumuisha enhances community development by creating a resilient youth and women in Makueni County. This is achieved through advocacy, networking and building capacities of community members in various social thematic areas. Community development unit seeks to achieve social responsibility.
We believe that the communities are the core structures that house social and economic development. We empower communities to understand their role in governance, building capacities and promote social change.
